Wolverhampton Wanderers are keeping a close eye on free agent striker Diego Costa, according to UOL journalist Bruno Andrade.
Costa’s contract at Atletico Madrid was terminated at the end of December, and he has been a free agent ever since.
The Spaniard agreed to rip up the deal six months early after marking only two La Liga starts prior to Christmas.
He has, of course, played in the Premier League before, enjoying a three-year spell at Chelsea from 2014 to 2017.
Costa landed two titles in that time and scored 52 goals in 89 appearances.
Lage assembles his striking options at Wolves
Bruno Lage, newly appointed as Nuno Espirito Santo’s successor at Molineux, will evaluate Costa with a view to a possible move.
Wolves are set to welcome striker Raul Jimenez back into the fold next season after he missed much of the 2020/21 campaign with a fractured skull, while teenager Fabio Silva is also an option in the forward ranks.
Fan feed Talking Wolves relayed the Costa report, and here’s how fans reacted.

“He’s on the same plane as Talisca”
“Surely we go for it”
“Please let this happen Jeff”
“Oh get him in”
